prayer-hands

Holy God,
I come before you on bended knee
and with words of praise on my lips.
In creation I observe your handiwork.
I gaze with wonder at all I see.
Tears fill my eyes
as I behold the rising of the sun.

Lead me along your straight paths,
guide me towards your purpose.
Allow my heart to know only you.
Purge from me thoughts of
selfish desire, anger and despair.

For you are God.
You are holy and wrapped in splendor.
My heart longs to hear your voice,
my soul yearns to be united with you.

Walk with me,
Teach me,
Keep me
and sustain me.
Amen.
